Mecca Bingo Awards: Hero motorcyclist saved crash women
THE MUM of a heroic motorcyclist picked up an award on his behalf..
Jordan Luke, aged 21, of Horwich, helped rescue two women just seconds after a horror smash on the A666 on October 5.
Voters chose Jordan for the Local Hero Award.
In honour of Jordan’s efforts, his loved ones surprised him with a holiday abroad, which is why he could not pick up the award in person.
Accepting the award on his behalf, his proud mother, Laura Harrison, said: “Everyone in the family is proud of Jordan.
“He is such a nice lad — the kind of person who would do anything for anyone and, when everyone else sits down in a moment of crisis, he stands up for what is right.” On the day of the crash, witnesses reported seeing two cars “racing” at high speeds along the A666.
A silver Ford Fiesta had overturned on to its roof after being hit by a white Audi S3.
The Fiesta was not involved in the alleged racing.
Mr Luke, a security guard at Tesco Extra in Salford, parked his motorbike in the middle of the northbound carriageway to stop other drivers getting caught up in the carnage.
He helped pull two women, including the pregnant driver, out of the Fiesta — and even went back to retrieve her mobile phone from the car so she could call her husband.
Luckily the woman and her unborn baby were unharmed.
